Urea + Ceramide and NMFs
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Lotion
Dry skin lotion for the body
When the skin on our bodies has a stable barrier function, it protects us from external irritants and is able to maintain its optimal level of hydration. But when that barrier is impaired, skin can lose moisture and look and feel dry as a result.
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Lotion gives dry, rough and bumpy body skin the daily care it needs. It contains a unique combination of ingredients – Urea, Ceramide and other Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMFs) – which bind moisture in and repair skin´s natural protective barrier to prevent further moisture loss. The formula has been clinically and dermatologically proven to deliver immediate relief and intense, long-lasting moisturization, delaying dryness and roughness for up to 48 hours.
Skin is intensely moisturized and looks and feels smooth and soft.
The dry skin lotion is suitable for those with mature skin and/or Diabetes. It can also be used as adjunctive care.

The Ceramide in the formula repairs the skin barrier and reduces moisture loss. The Urea and other NMFs bind in water, giving immediate relief to dryness and roughness and delivering intense, 48-hour moisturization.
- Deficiency of skin barrier lipids
- Deficiency of moisture binding substances such as Urea and other NMFs
- The Ceramide in the formula repairs the skin barrier and reduces moisture loss
- Urea and other NMFs bind in water and relieve symptoms of dryness and roughness
Why do I need a special dry skin lotion for dry, rough skin?
A moisturizer specially formulated for dry, rough skin should be rich in the ingredients that skin needs to prevent moisture loss, bind in more water and strengthen its protective barrier. Left untreated, or treated with a product that doesn’t contain the appropriate ingredients, skin might dry out further and may even crack.
Eucerin’s UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Lotion contains Urea and other NMFs (to bind water into the skin) and Ceramide (to repair the skin barrier and reduce moisture loss). The formula gives immediate relief and delays the symptoms of very dry skin (such as roughness and scaliness) for up to 48 hours.
Is Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Lotion safe for children?
This product is recommended for adults and has not been tested for children. For babies and children with dry skin and Atopic Dermatitis we recommend Eucerin AtopiControl. Most products in this range are suitable for babies over three months old.
How can I tell if I have dry skin or a skin condition or disease?
You can find information about dry skin as well as conditions such as Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) and Psoriasis on this website. You can also take our skin test to find out more about your skin type and condition and how best to care for it. If you are still unsure, or concerned about your symptoms, we recommend you ask a pharmacist or dermatologist for advice.
How do I know if I should use Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% or Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 10%?
Your choice of product should depend on the level of dryness of your skin and the symptoms you experience. If your skin is dry and rough then 5% Urea should be a sufficient concentration to provide immediate and long-lasting relief. If your skin is very dry then a higher, 10% concentration of Urea will be more suitable for immediate relief and for delaying symptoms for up to 48 hours. If you are in any doubt, we recommend you ask a pharmacist or dermatologist for advice.
